    Hi all, it’s killing me and I cannot figure out wtf this red notification is at the top of my Apple Watch. No I am not referring to the red dot but what looks like a tiny red graph of sorts.

    Any ideas?

    No!
    I like them. They make it easier to get to those apps in a quick manner.

    Did you use the beta? This is new to watchOS 5, so it's only been around for less than a month.

    Seconded that I really these shortcuts, but I don't care if there is an option to disable them for people who don't like them.

    That makes sense because I’m constantly playing other podcasts or music so it’s a constant

    Yes I was on the beta since it came out which explains why I was googling and could not for the life of me find out what this meant

    Right, that's what's great about it. I used to keep "Now Playing" in the dock, now I can remove it and out another app there instead.

    Lol..
    I just posted here saying that I liked how that icon took you faster to the app it referred to.
    I thought you got that from me.

    It sure is a neat feature.

    Sometimes the red music icon gets stuck on my Nike Series 4. It’s there when nothing is playing. Power off and back on fixes it.
